Multicultural Walking Tour In Yangon
Myanmar is center between two of the largest population countries in the world, China and India, and still enjoys a long history of trade with these old civilizations. Our multicultural walking tour takes you into the Indian and Chinatown Quarters of old Yangon. You will go inside heritage buildings and walk through a morning outdoor street market. On the walk there is a mixture of colonial buildings, churches, mosques (including Sunni and Shia) & Buddhist Monastery and Ordination Hall. These beautiful buildings reflect the mix of religions in this city. You will visit a Kali Hindu temple, as well as the beautiful French designed, St John’s Catholic Church and the only Synagogue in Myanmar. You will go inside an old colonial mansion that has seen better days, plus a fantastic 100-year old indoor food market. It’s a great showcase for the political and social history of Mynamar/Burma. The most impressive thing about Yangon is its vibrant street life with lots of market stalls and teahouses. This is a very easy walk through the crowded streets of Yangon. We could also enter the Chinatown area. There will be lots of opportunity to taste local foods during the walk.
